Just one win from last 15 starts but still capable of high-class form, as he showed when second to Shishkin in the Denman Chase at Newbury (2m7f, heavy); left well behind from three out in the Ryanair at Cheltenham next time, but this is weaker and drying ground will pose him no problems; real chance with blinkers replacing the usual cheekpieces.

J: Bryony Frost

T: Paul Nicholls

Has a disappointing strike-rate for a horse of his ability but is capable of smart form, such as third-place finish in this contest last year; clear best effort since when second in Newbury Grade 2 last month, having travelled smoothly into contention then eventually got outstayed by Shishkin over 2m7f on heavy ground; that tees him up nicely for another crack at the Ryanair.

Strike-rate could be better but he's capable of smart form, such as third in the 2023 Ryanair (on soft ground); went very close off 1lb higher in this race last year and should be thereabouts again.
